Crippled by procrastination…panic, self-loathing and soul-crushing inadequacy

Robert De Niro

“The mind of a writer can be a truly terrifying thing. Isolated, neurotic, caffeine addled, crippled by procrastination, consumed by feelings of panic, self-loathing and soul-crushing inadequacy… and that’s on a good day.”

– Robert De Niro

  10. Oh dear, they must end up writing very depressing stuff with all those negative emotions plaguing them. I shall rewrite that to say “The mind of a writer can be a truly exhilarating thing. Surrounded by characters of their own making, focused, calm, goal-orientated, consumed by feelings of clarity, satisfaction and optimism that with hard work it’s possible to achieve great things … and that’s on a good day.” (I had to used the last phrase!)
